The only pedal I've ever broken was a DW. Snapped at the hinge. And those little drumkey operated screws that secure the cymbal tilters... I've come across SO many of those things where the hole is stripped out. Also, the plastic cymbal tilter levers... I've seen many of those loose, wobbly, and broken. Maybe I've just had really bad luck crossing paths with the bogus gear. It's definitely heavy duty. Just doesn't seem to be really roadworthy.The STM brackets have come a long way. I remember seeing guys turn the toms in more than a 45* angle and watching the mount bracket flex. I've never really understood that approach but I prefer to play over the kit.
As for DW hardware in general, I have found them to be incredibly durable in regards to pedals and stands. Of course with the durability comes weight. In several instances while touring, I'd need to keep my trap case under a certain weight. In would go various lighter duty stands I had.
I've never had a piece of DW hardware strip or break on me. Im still using a snare and hi hat stand I have had for 20+ years.
